Canned goods used as building blocks for charity

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Macy's Star logos were built with canned goods in Downtown Cincinnati to kick off the 15th Annual Canstruction event on Wednesday.

Canstruction exhibits feature structures built entirely out of nonperishable food by teams across Cincinnati. Wednesday, a team built two Macy's Stars in the downtown Macy's location to kick off the event.

On February 28, teams will design unique structures, raise money to purchase food, and then have five hours to build their structures entirely out of canned goods.

The canned goods are donated to the Freestore Foodbank after the structures are no longer on display.
